A Wrongful death action is an action brought on behalf of an individual who died as the result of someone’s fault. THERE ARE VERY SHORT TIME LIMITS THAT YOU MUST MEET IN ORDER TO RECOVER FROM THE RESPONSIBLE PERSON/COMPANY OR ORGANIZATION. If the death occurred due to the acts or negligence of the government, you must give notice to that governmental agency within 182 days (C.R.S. 24-10-109). In fact, we successfully argued in front of the Court of Appeals issues on notice to the Government. If the wrongful death involves liability of liquor establishments or the serving of alcohol, you must file your suit within one year of the death.
This firm was able to get a $3,000,000 verdict against a liquor store that sold liquor to minors who then caused the death of two high school students. (Click here to read more about this important case as published in local Denver newspapers).
In wrongful death cases, the surviving spouse, children, parents or estate may be entitled to monetary damages for loss of companionship, loss of earning potential, funeral expenses and the like. There are many reasons why wrongful death cases occur including, but not limited to, car accidents, acts of government or intentional actions like assault and battery.
It is important for you to immediately contact the attorneys at Harding & Associates so that we can start to preserve evidence, commence an immediate investigation of the accident that caused the death and make sure that all time frames for filing a lawsuit or notice are strictly adhered to. If you miss these important dates, this could mean you will not recover any damages/compensation — no matter how good your case is.
